Jihad in northern Cyprus, which is illegally controlled by secular Turkey. Evidently secular Turkey is not secular enough to keep the jihadists out of northern Cyprus; it only maintains its “secular” character by a continuing series of concessions to radical Muslims; maybe this is one. From VOA News, with thanks to twostellas:
Cyprus’ justice minister says Chechen terrorists are training in Turkish Cypriot areas in the north of the divided island.
Justice Minister Doros Theodorou leveled the charge in an interview published Sunday in the newspaper Phileleftheros, but he declined to give the details of intelligence reports he said supported his claim.
Mr. Theodorou did say the terrorists are training to attack Russian targets.
While the Greek Cypriot government is internationally recognized, the Turkish region of Cyprus is recognized only by Turkey.
